An overnight 2-alarm fire in Glen Burnie has snarled the morning commute along Crain Highway. The first call came in around 3:00am and quickly escalated to 2 alarms.
Due to the nature of the fire, fire crews were forced to mount an exterior attack. Initial reports indicated that the business was occupied at all hours, but fire crews did not initially find anyone in the building.
The fire department has not yet released their report and we will update this article as soon as possible. The business is reported to be an auto-body shop. However, crews remain on location and commuters should expect congestion in the area of Crain Highway and 6th Avenue in Glen Burnie.
Photos of the scene have been released by the Anne Arundel County PIO in the following tweet (click the links to see):
